Description    


The purpose of Project is to prevent sediment from entering the Indian Creek stream network by decommissioning 1.63 miles of abandoned riparian and inner gorge logging roads, as well as storm-proofing 2.28 miles of road. Project is necessary because Indian Creek watershed inventories, overviews, and literature specifically recommend sediment reduction and large wood recruitment projects as a priority for Coho Salmon recovery.

Project Benefit    


Expected benefits of this Project are to reduce sediment delivery and improve water quality for all life stages of salmonids in Indian Creek by treating prioritized, high value sediment sources and preventing the delivery of approximately 9,659 cubic yards of sediment from road-related sediment delivery features to Indian Creek including, upgrading 12 features on 2.28 miles of road and decommissioning 20 features on 1.63 miles of road (a total of 32 features on 3.91 miles of road).
